France is calling for “exceptional support” for Libya, warning the country could fall into chaos without United Nations intervention.

If no action is taken, French President Francois Hollande warned, “terrorism will spread across the region.”

His comments come a day after the UN passed a resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire in Libya.

It is also seeking sanctions against those involved in the surge in violence between rival militias.
